At Rocky Branch our focus is on finding solutions to our problems. We have been learning some techniques ( Ignore it, talk it over respectfully with the person, try to agree on a win-win solution or get help from the teacher) We are working to be problem solvers by using the wheel of choice that we created as a class and to share our thoughts with each other during class meetings. We have created bonds by sharing strategies that have worked in the past. :)

Thank  you for supporting the school and our STEAM efforts by helping  your student get sponsors for the DA$H.  The money is due by Tuesday, November 3rd. ThankYOU!!!
